PLUS Logistics Celebrates Successful Launch

PLUS Logistics Celebrates Successful Launch

A new full service logistics offering from the business behind the hugely successful Palletline network is off to a flying start following its launch in April 2014.

PLUS Logistics is a brand new business offering customers bespoke logistics solutions across the UK and Europe.

The new business offers customers warehousing and storage, through the night store delivery, consolidation services, reverse logistics and emergency forward stock locations through Palletline’s established and successful member network.

Managing Director, Kevin Buchanan, says the team behind PLUS Logistics was extremely excited by the initial reaction from potential customers following a successful press launch and a very busy stand at the recent Multimodal exhibition at the NEC.

“PLUS Logistics is the next stage in our development and the whole team, from the people working in our head office to our regional hubs and 69 members, are very excited about what the future holds,” explains Kevin Buchanan.

“Multimodal was the exact springboard we needed to meet lots of potential customers over a short space of time to explain what the new business can offer.

“PLUS Logistics demonstrates a bold commitment to evolve and is a statement of intent to bring more choice to our customers. While the introduction of a new name and branding reflects our innovative spirit, the transformation continues on the inside, bringing our customers a more modern and connected solution.”

Award-winning Team

PLUS Logistics has a wealth of experience in the logistics industry.  With 69 members operating across 79 locations, the business employs 12,000 people and runs 6,000 vehicles. Over the last 22 years of trading the team has picked up a diverse range of awards and accreditations for its service delivery and customer care including Motor Transport’s Team of the Year and Network of the Year and a RoSPA Gold Award.

Dedicated Professionals

A new dedicated team of business professionals has been recruited to support the new business.

The PLUS Logistics central business development team has a wealth of experience in the industry and will work closely with Palletline’s 69 members to promote the offering of PLUS Logistics to both existing customers and potential new clients.

A Network Ideally Suited to Provide Logistics Services

At the heart of Palletline’s success is its willingness to expand its services to meet the needs of individual businesses. The business already offers extended services to many blue chip brands. PLUS Logistics has been created to expand this service even further to meet a growing need from the market for a whole package of solutions from one supplier.

Martin Rantle, Sales and Marketing Director, PLUS Logistics, says: “Our 69 members have a vast amount of experience dealing with a diverse range of customers from very small businesses that use our service on an adhoc basis to some of the biggest brands in the world.

“The power of partnership, the new strapline for PLUS Logistics, tells a great story about the business. Our strength lies in the network we have worked hard to build over the last 22 years. Between our 69 members we have five million square feet in storage space – a combined size that rivals many of the UK’s largest logistics providers.

“There is also a considerable amount of expertise, not to mention assets and infrastructure shared across the entire member network, expertise not only in pallets, but, in warehousing, logistics, storage, LTL, FTL and a whole suite of other transport related solutions and services.”

Confident Future

The team is confident it can meet a growing need in the industry, by using its proven track record to introduce a much greater selection of logistics services.

Kevin Buchanan says: “Over the last few years we have already begun to increase our services to support customers’ businesses. The creation of PLUS Logistics recognises this increased offering and we will be working hard to promote it now across the UK.”
